Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata Knight Riders will face Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals in the second qualifier of IPL 2021 being held in Sharjah on Wednesday. If Delhi Capitals, who are in the race for their maiden title, want to win the IPL this year, they will have to beat Kolkata first today. Whichever team wins the second qualifier will take on Chennai Super Kings in Dubai on October 15.
Kolkata, who have reached the qualifiers by defeating Virat Kohli’s RCB in the eliminator, are currently in amazing form as well as full of confidence. So on the other hand, Rishabh Pant’s Delhi, which is losing in the first qualifier to Chennai, will have a little bit of confidence, if he loses then his dream of winning the title will be shattered once again.
KKR, who played brilliantly in the second half of the IPL, a team that was nowhere close to qualifying for the playoffs, is playing the second qualifier today. KKR can present a lot of challenge for Delhi in today’s match.
If we talk about the matches between the two teams, then these teams have played 27 matches against each other so far. While KKR won 15 times, Delhi won 12 matches. In the last five matches, Delhi has won 3 times and Kolkata 2 times.
Delhi have won five out of 7 matches in the second half of the IPL and the two matches they have lost are against Kolkata and RCB. It will be interesting to see if Delhi will be able to counterattack Kolkata. Delhi has a strong batting unit as well as an amazing bowling unit.

Kolkata, which has played a different game in the UAE, you can guess from the fact that KKR did not allow Mumbai Indians to reach the playoffs. His run rate is so amazing that it shows the kind of game he has displayed in the last few days.
Kolkata has an amazing spin unit that can give a blow to the Delhi batsmen. Apart from this, KKR’s batting is also in amazing form, which can achieve any number of big run chases. But the matter of concern for them is Morgan’s not being able to score runs in the middle order, which Delhi can take advantage of.
